Practical Nursing (LPN) prepares adult students for an exciting career as a practical nurse, certified nurse aide, or many health-related careers. In this program, students learn practical nursing skills through classroom theory and clinical application. Knowledge and skills learned in the classroom are applied in clinical settings such as hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, longterm care facilities, as well as physician offices, hospice, and home health care settings.
Graduates of the program are eligible to sit for the National Council of State Boards Licensing Exam to become a Licensed Practical Nurse. The program is approved by the Oklahoma Board of Nursing and accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN).
